The countdown continues for the upcoming release of the action-thriller novel THE DOGON INITIATIVE, book one in The Deniables Series, by Lance and James Morcan, authors of The Orphan Trilogy, White Spirit  and Into the Americas.

 

The Dogon Initiative cover

Coming soon… another Morcan novel for thriller fans.

 

In THE DOGON INITIATIVE  the CIA hires foreign mercenaries to right some of the injustices happening around the world. They’re deniable assets, which means no-one’s coming to help if a mission goes pear-shaped. They’re known as the Deniables.

In the opening chapters, the CIA’s Cape Town asset, a woman known as the Handler, explains to the Deniables why they’re been hired. Here’s a brief excerpt:

“My client is especially concerned about events occurring in far flung corners of the globe. Events that are not only against their best interests, but against the interests of Mankind. Events that go unchallenged and unpunished.” Choosing her words carefully, the Handler added, “Some of those events are of the client’s own making and the client takes full responsibility for that. They want to do something about it… starting with the formation of a small taskforce that will act as the head of the spear so to speak.”

A suspicion was beginning to form in Hawkins’ mind. He suspected the so-called client was a foreign intelligence agency. America’s NSA and CIA came to mind, as did Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, France’s DGSE and South Africa’s SASS.

 

The Kindle ebook version of THE DOGON INITIATIVE  will be released soon.

The Dogon Initiative cover

 Lance & James Morcan’s first book in The Deniables Series, their new action-thriller series.

 

In THE DOGON INITIATIVE, American Intelligence recruits a team of foreign mercenaries. They are considered ‘deniable assets’ and go by the unlikely but somewhat prophetic name the Deniables. Their first mission is to repatriate one Moussa Diarra, an African exile, from New York back to his Dogon homeland in Mali, West Africa. The inspirational Moussa’s lifelong ambition is to save his Dogon people from extinction. Unfortunately, there are militant ethnic factions in Mali intent on preventing his return and exterminating his people. His fate is in the hands of the Deniables who, between them, have hard-earned skills honed in some of the world’s bloodiest conflicts. They need to call on all those skills if they are to complete the mission.

Members of the deaf community resonate with the new release crime-thriller Silent Fear  if the early reviews are any guide. Little wonder given the storyline, which is set in a university for the deaf in London, was inspired by the real-life murders of deaf students at Gallaudet University, in Washington, D.C., and was written under the guidance of a deaf consultant.

 

Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) by [Morcan, Lance, Morcan, James]

Novel resonates with deaf community.

 

In her 5-Star review on Goodreads, deaf educator Megan Rang says as a teacher of the deaf, she looks for literature that accurately depicts deaf characters in deaf culture. Her review follows:

“This book was also a thriller and that is a genre I am drawn in by. With a serial killer AND a flu quarantine it makes for a lot happening.

“The characters in this story weren’t the type I would fall in love with and be rooting for throughout the book. Most seemed to have issues and that added to the suspense. I had read a review that said the reader was completely thrown off guard by the outcome of this book. With that in mind I started looking more deeply at the characters and had it all figured out minus the very final twist that you can’t see coming. It made for good reading.

“I have recommended and will continue to recommend this book to others. It was worth reading.”

Amazon reviewer J.D. Denness says, “It’s not often you come across a book featuring the deaf community and even rarer for the story to be based in a school for the deaf. For the last 16 years I’ve worked at a school for the deaf so I was very interested to see how the authors did portraying this unique community. They have done a very good job, their research has been thorough and the advice they got was spot on… All in all this a very good book, one of my top reads for 2017, it is well worth the time to read.”
